    • Synopsis
    • Silence. Repitition. Rhythm. The film is a very strict, next to silent meditation on monastic life in a very pure form. No music except the chants in the monastery, no interviews, no commentaries, no extra material. Changing of time, seasons, and the ever repeated elements of the day, of the prayer. A film to become a monastery, rather than depict one. A film on awareness, absolute presence, and the life of men who devoted their lifetimes to God in the purest of form. Contemplation. An object in time. "Into great silence" is the first film ever about life inside the Grande Chartreuse, the mother house of the legendary Carthusian Order, based in the French Alps. From the director of the award-winning "L'amour, l'argent, l'amour" and "The Terrorists".
